Song Of The Week #124 Giant – Innocent Days
Last time, I described Shark Island and this week is reserved for the next unjustifiably underrated band. Not only this song is great but the video is really a masterpiece.
Maybe you have heard this song before, but when it comes to practical information, “Innocent Days” was released in 1989 on Giant’s debut album named “Last of the Runaways“.
Now, it’s time for the the subjective part. The first thing that should be featured is the melodiousness. Imho, it’s their biggest quality, but life is life and maybe it was enough for their two first albums, but it didn’t help when whole glam metal scene was shrinking.
I wonder where they could be now, if they released this album, let’s say in 1986, … Nevertheless, the album peaked on Billboard 200 charts (#80 1) as opposed to song in itself.
